Nice shot. I think that maybe warming up and removing a bit of the green cast in the lit rock would make it even better.

Just as an aside, knowing the sensor well that your camera is using, I think 12 to 15 shots ends up in a better more noisefree sequator stack.

Thanks EJ.  I had a stack of 13 images but for some reason they wouldn't line up correctly in Sequator  The edges of rocks in the image were erratic.  I cut the number of images to just a few to get a reasonable result but it looks to me that the edges of the boulder are still not totally lined up.  It wasn't windy so I don't know what could cause this besides camera shake.  I've had this problem before and ended up using only 4 or 5 shots in the stack for a good result.

Wow...really impressive MW image...well done.
Regarding your note...if you eventually find out what caused the f/g stacking not to line up, please let us know..

I like the way the stars seem to be shooting out of the rock! Nice one!
